The pediatric neurology program at All Children’s Hospital provides care for infants, children and teens with a full range of neurologic problems. We work closely with the board-certified pediatric neurosurgeons at All Children’s Hospital to provide multi-disciplinary care for children who have undergone or may require neurosurgery.
Our pediatric neurologists provide extensive diagnostic and treatment services for children with seizure disorders. These include inpatient telemetry, vagal nerve stimulation, ketogenic diet, and ongoing management of anti-seizure medication.
The pediatric neurology program also draws upon the valuable expertise of All Children’s pediatric radiology and diagnostic imaging services, including MRI and neuroradiology.
As members of the All Children's Neuroscience Institute, the pediatric neurologists work closely with the pediatric neurosurgeons at ACH and draw upon the expertise of specialists in neuroimaging, neuro-oncology and neuropathology as needed.
Pediatric epileptologists limit their practice to caring for children with epilepsy, particularly patients whose seizures are not well controlled by standard epilepsy medications. Our program specializes in the comprehensive evaluation of patients who have difficult-to-treat epilepsy. In most children medication can effectively control seizures, but there are some children and teens with epilepsy who have unacceptable side effects from medication or whose seizures are resistant to medication (intractable seizures).
Our Pediatric Epilepsy program has a full spectrum of epilepsy services, including:
Colin Nguyen, MD
Dr. Nguyen is a graduate of the University of South Florida College of Medicine.

He is a diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and a member of the Child Neurology Society, the American Epilepsy Society, and the American Academy of Neurology.
S. Parrish Winesett, MD
Dr. Winesett's practice is limited to the evaluation of intractable epilepsy for advanced procedures such as epilepsy surgery, vagal nerve stimulators, ketogenic diet, complex medication management and clinical trials. After a residency in pediatric/internal medicine at the University of South Florida, he completed his pediatric neurology fellowship at Vanderbilt University. In addition, he completed a pediatric epilepsy fellowship at the Cleveland Clinical and USF. Dr. Winesett is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at USF. Dr. Winesett has written multiple academic chapters on pediatric and adult epilepsy.
